1. THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT HAS ACTUALLY DEBATED WHETHER OR NOT TO ALLOW TRUMP TO ENTER THE COUNTRY
The British Parliament actually gathered together in order to debate whether or not Donald Trump should ever be allowed to enter Britain. The debate came in response to a petition signed by over 250,000 Britons to deny him entry. That number was enough to compel a debate from the British Parliament.
2. DONALD WOULD HAVE BEEN A BILLIONAIRE ON HIS INHERITANCE ALONE
Donald Trump inherited so much money from his father that he would have the same net worth if he would have just put his inheritance in an index fund. He could have sat around and done nothing and just let his money accumulate instead of working.
3. HE WAS SENT TO MILITARY SCHOOL FOR BAD BEHAVIOR
While he went to elementary school and middle school in Queens, NY, he started getting into trouble in his teen years. That prompted his parents to send him to New York Military Academy in the hope that it would straighten him out.
4. HE’S BEEN INDUCTED INTO THE WWE HALL OF FAME
Trump has hosted several WWE events at Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, NJ, and was often seen in the front row of the stands. But in 2007, he rose to WWE fame when he dropped tens of thousands of dollars from the rafters in order to upstage Vince McMahon. After that came the Battle of the Billionaires, in which Trump earned the right to shave McMahon’s head
5. TRUMP IS OVERSENSITIVE ABOUT THE SIZE OF HIS FINGERS
Decades ago, the editor of Vanity Fair, Graydon Carter, called Trump a “short-fingered vulgarian.” Trump was so bothered by being called short-fingered that he periodically sends Graydon Carter pictures of himself with his hands circled with the gold sharpie. He has also sent tracings of his hands to prove that there was nothing short about his fingers.
6. DONALD TRUMP OFFERED OBAMA FREE GOLF FOR LIFE
This one is just strange because it is so off the wall. Donald Trump apparently offered Barack Obama free golf for life at any of his golf courses. The only catch was that he had to resign from the presidency. The idea that free golf for life would be enough incentive to give up the presidency is laughable, especially when Obama has enough money to buy a round of golf whenever he wants.
7. HE MADE $375,000 AN EPISODE TO APPEAR ON HIS OWN SHOW
The Apprentice was a very popular reality television show for a period. It gave Trump great exposure, continued to propel his brand to a household name and gave him an opportunity to make new partnerships and advertising ventures. It also gave him a pretty decent paycheck. At 15 episodes a season, he made $5.6 million a year just to be on his own show.
8. HE CLAIMS TO HAVE NEVER USED AN ATM
While doing an interview with Conan O’Brien on Late Night With Conan O’Brien, he claimed that he has never used an ATM. That maybe be true, because, well, he has people to use the ATM for him. The man probably doesn’t even carry a wallet or debit card, because he is always flanked by people who do that menial stuff for him
9. TRUMP TOWER WAS CONSTRUCTED IN PART BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WORKING FOR $4 AN HOUR
The company that Donald Trump contracted to build Trump Tower hired 200 Polish workers who were in the country illegally. The workers were made to work 12-hour shifts for $4 to $5 an hour. Donald Trump later denied any knowledge of the illegal workers, but when workers asked for the money they were owed, he threatened to have them deported.
10. TRUMP SUED BILL MAHER FOR CALLING HIS FATHER A MONKEY
In a very bizarre feud between Donald Trump and Bill Maher, the talk show host accused Donald Trump of being the son of a monkey. He offered a $5 million prize if Trump could prove that his dad was a real human being. Trump then supplied his birth certificate and sued Bill Maher when he refused to pay the $5 million. The suit was eventually dropped, probably because the birth certificate wasn’t in long form.
11. TRUMP WANTS TO BE REBORN AS A BLACK MAN
In 1989, Trump told an interviewer that a well-educated black man had tremendous advantages over a well-educated white man in the job market. He said that he if he were starting off again he would want to be a black man with a good education because he truly believes that they have an advantage. He also believes that racism is completely gone because America elected a black president.
